Pulse Mobile does not work with my certificate

I'm using Pulse client on MacOS to authenticate to my company VPN with client certificate.

I installed Pulse client on my Android mobile, downloaded certificate as CER file.

I created the following connection:

URL: same URL as on MacOS
Authentication Type: Certificate on File
Certificate Path: path to the downloaded certificate
Key Path: as above

However, when trying to authenticate I'm getting the following error:

Missing certificate. Check that your certificate is valid and up-to-date, and try again.

That's pretty strange as same certificate I use on MacOS. What am I doing wrong?

Re: Pulse Mobile does not work with my certificate

Most likely, you install both the public and private key on your android device. For Mac OS X, you will need to combine the public and private key to a P12 file to have a proper certificate.

You can use openssl to convert the file:
